I haven't played much recently because:

- I was warned that wearing the tag would mean getting auto-kicked
- I've been trying to complete another game in my spare time - damn you Total War! I'm not coming back until I've conquered Europe!
- Indifference: I played too much and stopped feeling motivated. It's a phase

Actually the server settings have been reset - check the 3rd page.But we have to ask Rob to unban us.

Total War? Is that Medieval Total War 1 - I've played it but it's hard to conquer whole Europe.
I've also played a wide range of strategy games before(still like them more than FPS):
Lords of Magic,Homeworld Cataclysm,Age of Wonders 2,Command & Conquer Generals - Generals Zero Hour - Tiberium Wars....

I also can't play too much now - I have to study(but I will play every day a little)

No, Rome Total War: he's got Medieval Total War (1 & 2), so I might try one or both of those next. I spent untold hours playing the original Command & Conquer and Red Alert, I didn't think much of Tiberium Sun and Generals was so-so; I'm quite keen to have a go at Supreme Commander, it's had really good reviews.

The scoreboard now shows the spectators in the game as well (but not me bounce). Since I had to update both scoreboards, that's ~120KB fresh to download for you all.

The bans have been cleared for those cod members (or related) who I have seen accessing the server in the past couple of days. flower

That's cool - out of curiousity, why were they excluded before? I decided it was because GameTracker probably doesn't have the fidelity to distinguish between playing and non-playing players, so as a spectator, your FPS would plummet - and you were taking that into account, but it was just a guess.
Is there any limit to the number of spectators?

Nono, it has nothing to do with Gametracker or statistics. It's just the way UT works by default: it doesn't show spectators on the scoreboard (neither does SmartCTF). I might release a public version of SmartCTF with this feature and some additions, but I digress.

I have some good news though: I've just finished the second (well, actually third) version of ComboGib. Players can now no longer "spam" the secondary fire of the ComboGibRifle. I will do some more testing and install it tomorrow. bounce

MaxSpectators = 8.

Oh God yes! That's pretty much the most needed default game change IMO - nice job; down with ball spam!

I prefer the primary fire of ComboGib - but it requires good aim.
I was on ND2 yesterday - had a monster kill with only primary fire.I kept slaying people going backwards carrying the flag - had 4 caps in one game and 100 kills.I might post some screenshots.I had crazy score on ND1 but my game crashed when I pressed F9.
BTW is it just me or... It's too easy on ND now.

Yay the heat got the best of me (well, the server) again x2 (actually downclocked the processor now) cherry Back in approx. 5 minutes.

If you have suggestions how to make ND2 (even?) better.. or ND1 for that matter.. let me know. But you already knew that so this post is totally obsolete.

Well ND doesn't always have skilled players all the time compared to old days... Which is why I often ask some guys to join one team against me, to play 3 vs me, or even 5 vs me alone.

Yesterday, I was gonna have a complete fun playing against Tinribs for my last game of the night before sleep but my mouse batteries died at the end of the game while I was loading rockets which made me kill myself. Until I went to spectating mode, almost all my teammates also left so I suppose they were just relying on me all the time...

Just like J0ker said, if you want a good challenge and you want to improve your skills, go to .de old friends, FFA inzane and stuff like that from the .de servers... He suggested no other server. For J0ker, those servers may be already easy for him but he doesn't know any better pro servers... He only has to wait for the pros the show up... He's already a pro himself and wants to be a god. I don't think I've ever seen someone doing midair headshots while flipping fast in midair with the use of translocating before even landing on the ground. J0ker style. When he's having bad days, he's still doing very good...

The trick with the sniper is that you shouldn't track the enemy with your sniper but shoot one target on the floor near the enemy.The enemy will move to avoid,but it will get in your fire and die.It's much better than to track and shoot,this way you have less chances to miss.

Rob check the Excessive Overkill mod - might be nice for ND1/2:
http://ut-files.kissthepants.com/Excessive_Overkill/excessive2_0.zip

And finally I got my own server to work under Linux - the damn router was the problem.
After activating DMZ and setting port forward to 192.168.1.3(my internal IP) it WORKS.I wrote the address on another PC with dial-up and it said:

[LINUX] {Dark} Darkness Clan Server Ping 204 CTF-Facing Worlds Players 0/16

Gametracker(will work only temporarily - 'cause IP will change):

Haha you should've told me you had problems. I've made this topic for people like you *click*

Edit: the reason it would only work after you had connected to your own server through dial-up, was probably because of uPnP. This will automatically create port forwards as needed and is enabled by default in most home routers; though it's a great security risk!

Thanks a lot!I remember this site - I've used it to find some servers,didn't know it can find my own server though.

uPnP is disabled in my router setup - router is Huawei MT882v2(info from portforward)

This is newsworthy: I've added a pro ( Laughing Laughing sorry, can't control my laughter) map to ND1: CTF-Bleak-CE100. Surprisingly it's actually pretty fun to play and the grappling hook also works well due to the open space in the map. It takes a few minutes to get the hang of.. and quite some minutes to download (for most) Laughing

So true. I just took this screenshot to illustrate:



You'd expect people would have gained some playing experience by now (with the game being over 9 years old).

Hahaha... Thanks for the screenshot... Laughing I like the title of the image file... It shows how it is everyday in average... It could have been worse than that... Laughing I tried to bring some skilled players to spice things up but we often spectate to give some chances for those less skilled players to have their moment of glory... Cool

I know that a lot of old experienced UT99 players moved on to UT2k3, UT2k4 and then UTk8... But those who really love UT99 (like me) remain.
My UT2k4 is in the closet... over 5 damn CDs to install but my computer now needs a bit more space because I'm hosting a website of trafficked music albums and even 5 HD aren't enough to store all my musics / movies / videos... What a Face UT99 is just very fun to play and not over 1gb yet on my PC.

The grappling hook is working a *lot* better now - it still glitches occassionally, but much more rarely than before, so that's cool.
